Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls, here we have the very first Guestmix for GIVAFIZZ. Hell yes!
One of the reasons for starting the blog was to find new & upcoming talent, so it’s ideal to have Mr Woznikaitis as our first guest behind the decks. We first discovered Greg while listening to Slo-Mo Radio, a great Glasgow based radio show. With his super slow, super sexy track Can’t Stop – it turned us on straight away!
Although, other than this sexy track, we didn’t know much else – so we decided to catch up with him and find out a bit more.
Hi Greg, how are you doing today and where are you talking to us from?
Very Good. I’m currently in a hotel room in the Pocono Mountains of my home state Pennsylvania.
Tell us a bit about your journey into music – where did it start? What sort of stuff you like? What influences you?
I grew up listening to punk and hardcore music as a teenager but I was always opened minded to all kinds of music and still am. I usually love anything that Hot Creations or Permanent Vacation puts out, I recently had a chance to see one of my favorite new producers, MANIK, play an after hours party in Philly and he destroyed it. Luckily I live so close to Philly and there is such a great underground house and disco scene there and I’ve gotten to meet and become friends with a lot of great like minded DJs there. Love playing that city.
We first came across your music on Slo-Mo Radio and loved your track “Can’t Stop” – super slow & sexy! Tell us more about what went into the making of this track.
Thank you, glad you liked it. I love doing warm up sets and playing down-tempo and thats what it’s made for. I basically just really liked that vocal sample and wanted to build the track around that.
Tell us about your Tonight remix, another great slo-mo. How did that come about? Is it your first official release?
Yes it was my first official release. Ejay (Hotbox) was starting up his label (Hotbox Music) and really liked “Can’t Stop” and asked if I wanted to remix one of his tracks, which i was very stoked to do and it ended up getting great support from Beatport, charting it in the 10 Must Hear Nu-Disco tracks of the week.
Thanks for the super guestmix. Top notch. It seems you’ve strayed into more deep house vibes here. Is this the way your influences and productions are set to go?
Thank you. Yeah, definitely on the deeper side. I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had much time to DJ so I wanted to record a set similar to what you would expect to hear if i were playing a club.
What does the future hold for Greg? Any new productions we can look forward to?
I’m currently working on an E.P. for Hotbox Music and my buddy Matt (Softmore) and I had thrown the idea around of collaborating on some new stuff. He’s coming up from NYC for a visit next weekend so we’ll see what we can come up with, but we’ll probably just end up drinking too much and bullshitting and never get any actual work done. That’s usually what we do.
Now to the main event. GIVAFIZZ GUESTMIX 001, with thanks for Greg Woznikaitis. Let’s go…
